A PhD Mechanical Engineering degree can open many doors for career opportunities. With a PhD Mechanical Engineering, candidates can specialize in one of several sub-disciplines such as mechanics, mechatronics and robotics, structural analysis, thermodynamics and thermo-science, or design.
During the approximately four years candidates work on their PhD Mechanical Engineering degree, they will conduct their own original research on a specific topic that must result in a dissertation of publishable quality. Candidates have the opportunity to investigate more deeply the discipline’s frontiers of research, like microelectro-mechanical systems, friction stir welding, composites, nanotechnology, finite element analysis, or biomechanics.
For candidates with a graduate background in engineering, who already possess the foundational knowledge in physics and material science, a PhD Mechanical Engineering could be the next step. Read more below about opportunities to start your PhD Mechanical Engineering program!

PhD in Mechanical Engineering Innovation in product design and manufacturing has become a major driver for industrial competitiveness and profitability in recent years. As enabling technologies to become more easily accessible, engineers are faced with increasing demands for designing and producing more complex mechanical devices to serve the needs of the society. Next-generation engineering products will be 'smart' with many functionalities; they will be made of new materials; they will increase energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact; they will vary in size from nano to mega scales, and they will be more closely integrated with information processing systems. Also as mechanical systems are becoming increasingly complex to analyze and expensive to experiment, more emphasis will have to be placed on computer-aided analysis, design, verification, and manufacturing. Our research program in mechanical engineering responds to these trends and focuses on basic research related to materials science and process engineering, product design, and information integrated manufacturing processes. In doing so applications to different physical processes are studied (e.g. energy systems, bioengineering, metal forming, polymer processing, discrete part manufacturing to name a few).Research Areas...
